Many young walkers may find it unproductive to join a walking club as many contain mostly older members with different aspirations and probably very different lifestyles from those in their twenties or thirties . Northern Ireland Young Walkers is designed for those who wish to walk and socialize with others of the same age range .The target members are 18-30 year olds. This has held through the years, but as key members get older it has become 20’s 30’s + (there is no exclusion policy for older members!)

Established in 2005 by a small group of friends, the Northern Ireland Young Walkers has not only grown from strength to strength in terms of its membership- from half a dozen to an active membership of nearly 90. The club has grown to have a separate social side, we offer a separate social calendar. Social events include nights out, dinners, house parties, salsa, pub quizzes and weekends away are the norm.

We walk in the Mournes and Sperrins and Wicklow or the Antrim Plateau, the club is based in whatever car park in which we convene and where the cakes and coffee are served up after. The walks themselves are as varied as the people who lead them. We are always glad to hear from anyone wishing to come along and try out a walk or two, or even just if you are curious as to what we do.
